  • Stir flour, sugar, brown sugar, ground pistachio nuts, 1/2 cup chopped pistachio nuts, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Make a well in the center.

  • Whisk together milk, melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract, and almond extract together in a bowl. Pour milk mixture into the well of the dry ingredients and mix with a spatula just until batter is combined but a few lumps remain; do not overmix.

  • Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each 3/4 full. Sprinkle remaining chopped pistachios on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tops spring back when lightly pressed, about 15 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Works for me. I specifically searched for a pistachio muffin recipe and since this was the only one I gave it a try (though I usually cherry pick the recipes with the most reviews/highest ratings). Since this one had no reviews yet here I am writing my first ever review on AR and finally paying the community back. I followed the recipe without intentional modifications. It was easy and pretty fast. I thought they needed 18 minutes in my oven but they did end up slightly drier than I would prefer. They also didn't rise as much as I hoped but the texture was good. Like most pistachio flavored things I've eaten the pistachio flavor was not as as noticeable as I would like. My kids both gave the muffins an 8 out of 10 and I will make them again (perhaps researching a way to boost the pistachio flavor) Read More

I really wanted a recipe that didn t use pistachio pudding mix so I went with this one. Although the texture and moisture level were perfect the taste was extremely bland. Read More
